At Tiles Direct, we believe that the best thing about using tiles in your home is the broad spectrum of materials, finishes, colours and sizes available. This incredible variety means every homeowner - whatever their personal tastes or available budget - can find the tiling solution that suits them to a T. So, if glittering black quartz isn’t your thing and you’re on the hunt for something a little more rustic, say hello to our travertine tile collection.
Find out a little more about what makes travertine tiles unique, why they’re such a popular tiling solution for kitchens and bathrooms alike, and how you can get your hands on the travertine product for you right here.
What are tumbled travertine tiles?
Travertine tiles are, as you might expect, made using travertine: a compacted form of limestone that’s deposited by mineral springs (such as hot springs). Famed for its natural, textured appearance and warm, earthy colouring - with shades typically ranging from cream and beige to brown and gold - this stunning sedimentary rock is a popular choice when it comes to creating a high-end aesthetic in any property. And as travertine is natural stone, there are variations in colour and pattern, meaning no two tiles are quite the same.
Tumbled travertine tiles are visibly porous tiles that have been specially treated to enhance their natural pitting - a technique which creates a rustic, weathered aesthetic. Homeowners looking to bring elements of the outdoors inside their property without sacrificing sophistication will love our tumbled travertine range - as each tile is fit to burst with unique character and boasts an authentic, rugged texture that can’t be artificially replicated.
Travertine tiles for kitchens or bathrooms
As with many of our product ranges, travertine tiles are equally at home in kitchens or bathrooms - as their unmistakable finish and practical properties allow them to effortlessly combine fashion with function. In bathrooms, travertine tiles boast the necessary durability and longevity to keep this room looking beautiful for years to come, and can single-handedly transform your humble bathroom into that of a magnificent Mediterranean villa.
In the kitchen, travertine tile can create a striking focal point thanks to the uniqueness of each tile - and because of its naturally earthy colouring, it can also be combined to spectacular effect with a broad range of colour schemes (meaning you shouldn’t have to redecorate the room for your travertine feature wall to fall right into place). Better yet, natural stone is known to increase the resale value of a property so, by introducing travertine wall tiles into your kitchen, you could ultimately see a rewarding return on this investment.
Tiles in all shapes and sizes
At Tiles Direct, we know no two homeowners are the same - which is why we don’t believe a one-size-fits-all tiling solution exists (or even that it should). In our travertine collection, there are tiles available in a range of sizes - from 10x10cm all the way up to 30x30cm - as well as a choice of shapes, giving you the freedom to find the tiling solution that best suits your interior design aspirations.
From travertine brick wall tiles, ideal for a rustic kitchen backdrop, to mosaic tiles made for the walls of an exotic shower room, you can explore our online catalogue to find the product that’s perfect for your home.
